July 2017:  Following an announcement in April 2017 (Read BBC article here), a planning application has now been made.  Millicent Fawcett may have pipped Lady Thatcher to the post !  See our Planning page for link to WCC to make a comment.

Our response to the planning application:  "Although we have no objection to the subject matter of this statue, which is not controversial, we have strong reservations about the current rapid increase in the number of monuments in an area that has been declared a Monument Saturation Zone. This Westminster City Council policy should be adhered to, both now and in the future."
